This week, I attend the CCF-AI 2021 conference, which is the Chinese Computer Federation conference on Artificial Intelligence. This conference is held in the city of Yantai (烟台) in Shandong province of China, from the 22th to 24th July 2021.
CCF-AI is a national conference. But it is a major conference in China, with over 1,000 attendees. I attend this conference to meet other researchers and get to know about the recent results in this area. There are many high level speakers at the conference and activities.
In the past CCF-AI has been held in various locations around China. Here is a few of them:
The city where CCF-AI is held this year is Yantai (烟台). It is a coastal city in eastern China, in Shandong province. It has good weather during the summer, beaches and many other activities.
The conference was held at the Yantai International Expo Center:
After arriving at the hotel, all attendees have to pass a test for the COVID to ensure the safety of everyone at the conference. Then, I registered and received my bag and badge with the program and other information.
Day 1 – Multi-Agent Systems forum
The conference is divided into some sub-forums. On the morning of the first day, I attended the multi-agent system forum. I also had some good discussions with other researchers.
Day 1 – Meeting of CCF-AI members
On the evening, I attended the meeting of CCF-AI members.
It was voted that CCF-AI 2023 will be held at Xinjiang University in Urumqi, China.
There was also a vote to select new members of CCF-AI. I am happy to have been selected:
It was said that for CCF–AI 2021, 339 papers were submitted and 128 papers were accepted (38% acceptance rate).
Other days and conclusion
There was also many other interesting activities and talks at this conference in the following days. However, my schedule was very tight. I came to CCF-AI, right after attending ICSI 2021, and I had to leave on the second day of CCF-AI to go to Shanghai to attend the DSIT 2021 conference in Shanghai, which I will talk about in the next blog post! Then, I will also attend the IEA AIE 2021 conference.
